Ballistic Weapons replaces UT2004's wepaons with a batch of new, realistic, high quality weapons using an enhanced weapons sytem with reloading, aiming, firemodes, improved damage behaviour and much more to give the game a more tactical style. All the items have also been replaced and the mod uses totally original sounds and effects. The entire mod is implemented through a mutator so it is compatible with all gametypes and many different mods. It also comes with a melee mutator to play using only the melee weapons. Decent bot support has been included, allowing the bots to use all the new weapons. The mod has also been designed to be very mod friendly so as to serve as a base for other mods allowing most features and systems to be implemented using just the default properties of new weapons. A manual is included with the mod as well.
Wield the power of Thor with the new volt mitts or simply shoot 'em up with the new advanced carbine!

Are you fed up with not being able to kill a man with your bare hands in the heat of battle? Sick and tired of feeling useless flailing away at the other guys? Is there an overwhelming wave of despair and hopelessness as your only friend dies in your scrawny, frail hands?
Me too my friends, until I loaded my fists with the might of Thor! The strength of Zeus! With the FMD H14 Combat Defibrillators, you too can go from a useless, panty-waisted chunk of dead weight to the most envied combat medic this side of the Milky Way!
With these miraculous volt mitts strapped on, not only can you easily kill a man with a single strike*, you can even stop the hail of deadly bullets** sure to come your way (from the jealous enemy) with the built in shield generator! And if that wasn't enough, you can heal all your new found friends with a soothing pulse of Frankenstein-Grade electric shocks, or simply give them a reassuring knuckle sandwich to bolster their moral and liven their spirits!
*FMD H14 Combat Defibrillators may require more than one strike to ensure lethality.
**FMD H14 Combat Defibrillators may not ensure survival against hail of bullets.
Let's make some analogies here. AK490 = Crude wooden stick. LK05 = Precision scalpel. E-V Plasma Cannon 9000 = Big Freaking Gun.
The completely tricked-out LK05 Advanced Carbine is guaranteed to make you the envy of all your crude wooden stick-toting allies! You see, some rifles come with lasers, some come with bayonets, and some come with magazines, but none come with all of them at once! This piece of precision equipment gives you a foregrip, holosight, laser aiming module, silencer, and flashlight, and yes, these are all usable ingame! So get out there and send some accurate rounds down range before getting obliterated by a big freaking gun!
And as usual, we've got a few ingame goodies to show you guys. Shown here are the X8 Ballistic Knife and MOA-C Chaff Grenades in their handheld forms.
These two weapons are normally mounted on their respective rifles, however we've now made it so that players who select those guns get the attachments as well! For example, loading out an MJ51 carbine with toxin grenades will give you both toxin and chaff grenades to pick from. Of course, using up all of your grenades or knives will deplete them from both the gun and your inventory, so watch your ammo!
Lastly, last month's MGL is now sporting a particularly rugged desert-tan finish and has gained the ability to fire remote detonated mines with its secondary fire. Now you have the choice of simply obliterating your opponents with 6 grenades at once, or sneakily maiming them with 1 cleverly hidden remote mine!
